After leaving the Great Market Hall, the next stop will take you through the city to the popular butchers and patisseries to sample classic delicacies like kolbasz (Hungarian sausage) and Dobos Torta, a sponge cake layered with chocolate butter cream and topped off with caramel. The delicacies provided will vary depending on the time of year that you visit.

After you have some food in your stomach, you’ll travel to a local shop for the wine-tasting portion of the tour. You’ll be offered three traditional Hungarian wines as your guide reveals the history and secrets behind each variety.

We met our guide at the Central Market in Budapest and she took us on an incredible eating and drinking tour. She was very knowledgable about all the food and wine we were served. And it was a lot of food. Don't eat breakfast. This tour was well worth the cost and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to this beautiful city.

This tour was fabulous! It complimented Budapest wonderfully and provided a delightful history lesson of life behind the Iron Curtain. My tour guide was knowledgeable, interested in sharing her heritage and delightfully funny. The places we stopped along the route were relevant, interesting and hidden gems that I returned to after the tour. The wine tasting at the end of the tour was the perfect way to conclude a day of Hungarian history through food. This tour is the way to start your time in Budapest!

The tour was amazing! Our guide worked for Taste Budapest. She was a local and took us around Pest sampling the best local stops for everything from breakfast (including a pre-breakfast tradition) through a traditional lunch, dessert and wine. Come hungry for this authentic Hungarian experience!!
